Cutting out under acceleration on 1992 Explorer

#1

My Explorer idles fine but it starts to cut out under hard acceleration. I have put in new plugs and wires. I am not sure if it is fuel or electrical…any ideas?

I have seen so many of these mass airflow meters fail that is where I would start. It can be cleaned which may be all you need. you will need a tamper proof torx driver. I think it’s a t20. Remove the maf, use some spray electrical cleaner to clean the filament, be careful dont damage it. Let it air dry, dont blow it dry with shop air. that will ruin it. After it dries reinstall it and test drive. Good luck
